Day 625: How to Save / How to Splurge Dispatch # 35

It's so rainy and gross out nothing sounds better than a warming glass of red wine and some cheese and for under $15 you can easily get a decent bottle of wine and 1/2 pound of cheese. First stop- venture into Zabar's and pick up a 1/2 pound or however much you want of Doux de Montagne, a French semi-soft cow's milk cheese that is round and buttery with creamy slightly nutty notes and a clean finish. Next stop, West Side Wines to grab a bottle of Cuvee Jean-Paul, a Vacluse Rouge from the Southern Rhone valley for $10.99 a bottle. A medium bodied red wine full of red fruit notes and a smooth finish. Next stop - your apartment to cuddle under a duvet and watch a movie.
